"Too Many Notes": A Study In Guitar-Masturbation

This is a collection of solos in metal songs that are friggin' long. Just for shits and giggles.

I make the rules up as I go along, but here are a few I've already come up with:
- Let's say "friggin' long" is at least one minute

1. Ayreon - Into The Electric Castle
2. Bathory - Hammerheart
3. Cellador - Enter Deception
4. Children Of Bodom - Follow The Reaper
5. Cirith Ungol - King Of The Dead

Evolution: Sailing The Seas Of Prog

Recently, instead of scouring too much the albums of the year I'm in, I decided to take a deeper journey and appreciate progressive music (prog metal/rock). While I'm still in the early beginnings of my journey, I decided to make a list to the albums I fully listen to so that I can keep charting my voyage in these vast seas. Some albums are not yet added because I need to listen them well and grab my favorites out, and some bands are on queue. I'm also eager to hear some recommendations, so thanks in advance for them!

1. Ayreon - The Human Equation
2. Barren Earth - The Devil's Resolve
3. Blotted Science - The Machinations of Dementia
4. Control Denied - The Fragile Art of Existence
5. Dream Theater - A Change Of Seasons [EP]

1. Stratovarius - Visions
2. Opeth - Ghost Reveries
3. Yes - Close to the Edge
4. Omnium Gatherum - New World Shadows
5. Ayreon - 01011001

Bibliophilia: Metal For Bookworms

A list for us bookworms, nerds, geeks, etc. Books are brutal and totally fucking metal.
This list lists books, poems, comic books, non-fiction and even movie adaptions of said books in some cases referenced to in albums (whether by concept, individual song or title).
This list is old. I started this way before The Epics, but never finished it. It's obviously not finished, so feel free to request. Initially, I was decided whether I should include songs based on stories from the Bible, but I'm leaning towards it. So expect that in a bit.

1. Ahab - The Call Of The Wretched Sea
2. Anthrax - Among The Living
3. Anthrax - State Of Euphoria
4. Avenged Sevenfold - City Of Evil
5. Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond

Coolingsrock's List Of Technicalities And Progressiveness

Technical and Progressive albums. Pretty much alphabetical order. comment for suggestions. If I added a band but didn't put all the albums, its because I never got around to listening to their complete discography or didn't find it technical or progressive.

Other good albums that didn't make it to the list:

1. After The Burial - Rareform
2. Allegaeon - Elements Of The Infinite
3. Animals As Leaders - Animals As Leaders
4. Animals As Leaders - Weightless
5. Animals As Leaders - The Joy Of Motion
